Atari ST A to Z: Vaxine

Next time you get bacteria in your ilium, call me up and I’ll come blast your balls for you.

Vaxine from The Assembly Line is one of the most technically impressive games on the Atari ST, featuring gorgeous and colourful ray-traced graphics, convincing sprite scaling routines and an interesting blend of physics puzzle and first-person shoot ’em up.

Developed as a sequel to the team’s previous game E-Motion, which marketed itself as “the first New Age computer game”, Vaxine is a simple but enjoyable time that shows what Atari’s 16-bit computers were really capable of when in the hands of someone who knew what they were doing.

    1. Yeah. Definitely some of my all-time favourites. I never realised they were behind Pipe Mania and Xenon II as well! (Or so Wikipedia tells me, anyway.) Interphase is definitely one of my top ST games, and I do like this one and E-Motion… when I can get the latter running!
